We want our shareholders to participate appropriately in our financial success. In setting the dividend, we aim to distribute approximately 40% of the net profit attributable to Daimler shareholders. The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose to the shareholders for their approval at the Annual Meeting to be held on April 10, 2013 that a dividend of €2.20 per share be paid out (2011: €2.20). The total dividend payment will then amount to €2,349 million (2011: €2,346 million). (See graphic 3.24)
